I have searched on google for either a canon xti replacement battery and for a xti battery grip. I found a few but to be honest do not know which aftermarket batteries are reliable. I have seen a replacement battery on radioshack which is the only site I was able to recognize. I saw a actual canon battery grip but don't think that the $220 price tag is worth for the camera I have. If there is a reliable after market battery grip, it will do.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Pretty much any of the aftermarket grips will be acceptable, just understand that they aren't quite as good as the canon. I've had a zeikos grip before for a rebel body and wouldn't hesitate to do it again in that situation. You save a lot and it really works the same.

For batteries, however, I recommend either getting canon or reliable 3rd party such as sterlingtek

I have seen used canon battery grips for less than $70 on ebay, tempting. Just hesitant whether to jump at it or not.

I have seen this one: http://www.adorama.com​/PQACD239.html (external link)
But I guess I rather stick to canon batteries.

Sterlingtek are the go to third party batteries. There are many members on this forum that are willing to stand by Sterlingtek batteries, including me.

I have 7 year old Sterlingtek batteries. I've been very happy with the product and their customer service.
